After two hours of intense (for our standards :D) stand-up paddleboarding, we felt we deserved a hearty lunch! Most of the restaurants in town were full, so we picked Sea Monster Noodle Bar, as it seemed to serve fast-er food.
For whatever reason, neither of the Molangs were drawn to noodles. Instead, we ordered two rice bowls.
Salmon Poke – $14
Awesome post-workout bowl #1. This bowl came with salmon, avocado, seaweed/dried seaweed, onions/scallions, ginger, and tobiko. We determined the marinate to be some kind of sesame oil. If you’ve ever had poke before, this would taste very familiar. Your choice of white or brown rice.
Fish Curry – $15
Awesome post-workout bowl #2! This was a Thai-inspired rice bowl as seem by the usage of green curry and coconut milk. Other toppings: white fish, prawns, cilantro, basil, bok choy, and mushrooms. The acidity of the lime juice balanced out the richness of the curry. Having spent hours in seawater, this warm curry bowl was truly satisfying to consume!
Molang Scores & Verdict
Very fresh food! For those who are health-conscious, many of their noodles/rice bowls are gluten-free (including the two we’ve reviewed)!
